Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Thu, Sep 10, 2015 @ 08:00 AM


Do you feel like you have gotten into a rut at the gym? Maybe you’re just starting to feel a little bored with your routine! We have a new and easy to implement exercise that you can use to switch up your workout. All you have to do is walk on a treadmill.

It’s so easy! Simply, set the treadmill incline in between 10% - 15%. If you’re just starting a workout regime, start at the 10% incline and work your way up over time. If you’ve been exercising for a while, start at 13% of an incline. Once the incline is set, set your pace at 1.5 to 3.0 miles per hour. From there, you just walk for 30 minutes. Simple!

Burn Calories

Walking at an incline works your calves, your thighs, and your glutes. If you don’t hold on to the handles, you’ll also work your core muscles. It’s a great overall workout, plus it burns significantly more calories than walking on a flat surface because your body is working at an incline

Get Some Cardio

With an incline workout, you are also developing cardiovascular strength. Your body is not only pushing forward, but also upward, which helps you breath deeper and increases blood flow to your heart. You’re getting in cardio exercise without putting stress on your joints with high-impact exercise, like running and jumping.

Leaner, Longer, Stronger

With consistency, a high-incline treadmill workout will give you noticeable changes in your legs and glutes. Your calves will become leaner and stronger. Your glutes will lift and you will begin to notice more firmness in your legs. Overall, a treadmill incline workout is great addition to your normal gym routine or a great place for beginners to start! If you are looking for weight-loss support as part of a workout plan and healthy diet, then consider trying LOWAT®. Made from a new patent-pending ingredient derived from Ayurvedic plants, LOWAT has been clinically studied to support weight loss.
